How far along: 16 weeks, it’s going so fast!
How big is baby: avocado.
Total weight gain: 10ish lbs
Maternity clothes: Definitely.
Sleep: Great!! I’ve been sleeping really hard and not waking as much, very nice.
Best moment of the week: Not having any cavities at my dentist appointment. Also realizing by the time I go back to the dentist, the baby will be here!
Food cravings: Eggs and ice cream, just not together.
Food aversions: None.
Symptoms: I pulled my stomach muscles doing a prenatal workout video, so I’ve been VERY VERY sore since then, it felt like I was going into labor a couple times. It appears to be calming down, finally!! Quite a bit of heartburn and some nausea, but nothing too bad.
Movement: I’ve felt a couple more taps, but not a whole lot. Can’t wait to feel more movement!
Gender: No idea. This week, I’m leaning more towards boy.
What I’m looking forward to: More kicking, ultrasound, and halfway point in a couple of weeks. My birthday, Mother’s Day, and our anniversary are coming!! Looking forward to those too!!
What I miss: Nothing, I’m enjoying this pregnancy so much. I don’t know if it’s because it’s my second and I understand how amazing giving birth and having a baby is or because I’m not working full-time so I have more time to savor this pregnancy, or just because I’ve been feeling so good, but this pregnancy has been so wonderful! I’m enjoying it very much!
Next appt: May 9th, we’ll get to hear the heartbeat again, can’t wait!!
